Thanks for the input. Last year, when we were first considering the DirecTV switchover, I did a chat with someone at Solid Signal. His suggestion was the DB4 but that seemed like it might be a bit of overkill.

We had some very strong storms move through today and lost the sat signal for awhile. WFMY-CBS is plenty strong with the rabbit ears, so we watched the golf playoff before we ate, but the storms (and any potential snow interruptions this winter) have me very interested in moving forward with a quality OTA backup plan.
